It's been a while I haven't posted any update of our summer project so, here's one.



I spent a lot of time (feels like 2 weeks but, not sure) working on level design - more specifically, trying to make the environment interesting and easy to navigate.

Although I am worried about running length (this is only 5 minutes long) I think that there are critical improvements to make. So, the main issues coming to mind...
  • The underground area is optional. I could put a ground button there for sake, but I don't like to put a button when the player won't see its effect. Of course we might just collect a key in that place, or we could make a significant change to terrain design to force linearity. But I have something else in mind...
  • The tall tower needs its own navigation/camera system (so to speak) so that we could ascend using stairs.
  • And there is still nothing happening inside houses/buildingsThere are special places where the issue is more visible but I really hope that all interiors will be worth visiting. My good guess is that we should enter houses to collect keys and items. Finding useful things in houses is 100% natural. Maybe later we replace keys by something more exciting but... ...for now the logic of entering houses, poking around to find items that unlock the next part... it's a no-brainer.
In the meantime our team have been at it, doing pretty good work on animation and character design. This needs integration...
  • Characters need rigging and animating.
  • New animations for Majo need some coding to become visible.
In the meantime I still hope that things could get more appealing (visually, that is). I got a feeling that improving the visual side would boost everybody's morale and may help us raise a bit of funds for the project...

My first game, Antistar 3D: Rising, is a quirky adventure with mind boggling puzzles and a hint of slashing action.
